Visitors to the Great Limpopo Transfrontier National Park spanning parts of Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe can now use a border post inside the area to move around more freely. Opened in mid August, the Giriyondo border post links South Africa and Mozambique in what president Thabo Mbeki of South Africa called the beginning of a new era when we will bring down the colonial fences, which divided our nations over several centuries.
Established in December 2002, the 35,000 sqkm park includes Mozambiques Limpopo National Park (formerly known as Coutada 16), South Africas Kruger National Park and Gonarezhou, the second largest park in Zimbabwe, as well as other smaller nature reserves and animal sanctuaries. It contains a variety of wildlife including elephant, antelope and rhinoceros.
